I made an appointment at the salon to get a blowout and have my hair straigtened (with a flat-iron) for my graduation picture. I was really looking forward to having it professionally done and being pampered...\r
My hair is not long (shoulder-length), and this is not a grueling task. The stylist washed my hair, and then began to blow-dry it. After that, she put my hair into sections and began going over it with the flat iron. However, instead of turning the iron under a bit, she pulled the hair straight out, giving me frizz and making my hair stick out awkwardly (like I had put my finger in an electrical socket). Then, she straightened my bangs. She then put TONS of gunky products in my hair. When I put my glasses on and looked in the mirror...I thought my hair looked OK...(I could've done the same at home with more time, I just wanted to get it professionally done for the picture) Then, when I got into the car I realized that my hair looked incredibly greasy from all of the products. My bangs were half-straight and half-not... I was thinking ""I paid THAT much for THIS?"" Needless to say, I was unhappy. The stylist was not friendly (barely spoke), nor were the employees at the front desk. The prices were RIDICULOUS. Save your money and your time.
Pros: Location, Interior design of the salon
Cons: ...Everything else
